Science 262:578-580, 1993 included in all text books on the genetic basis of (human) behavior. Television documentaries on BBC, National Geographic (2012), Japanese Television, Austrian National television, Dutch national Television and others.

COGNOMICS, an interdisciplinary collaboration between cognitive neuroscientists, brain imaging specialists, and human geneticists from Nijmegen aims to uncover the molecular and neurobioogical underpinnings of cognition. This was started in 2008, and recently spawned its first major paper in the context of a large multinational consortium:
Stein JL, et al. Identification of common variants associated with human hippocampal and intracranial volumes. Nat Genet. 2012

The Brunner group has been leading in the application of genomic arrays to the understanding of intellectual disability and to ttranslate this research into effective medical diagnosis:
De Vries BBA, et al. Diagnostic genome profiling in mental retardation. Am J Hum Genet. 77:606-616, 2005 Cited 298 times
Koolen DA, et al. A new chromosome 17q21.31 microdeletion syndrome associated with a common inversion polymorphism. Nat Genet. 38: 999-1001, 2006. Cited 188 times.
Koolen DA, et al. Mutations in the chromatin modifier gene KANSL1 cause the 17q21.31 microdeletion syndrome. Nat Genet. 2012

Breakthrough paper that established de novo mutations as a common cause of intellectual disability and possibly of other neurodevelopmental disorders such as schizophrenia and autism. Cited 46 times in 2011:
Vissers LE, de Ligt J, Gilissen C, Janssen I, Steehouwer M, de Vries P, van Lier B, Arts P, Wieskamp N, del Rosario M, van Bon BW, Hoischen A, de Vries BB, Brunner HG, Veltman JA. A de novo paradigm for mental retardation. Nat Genet. 42:1109-1112, 2010
and several other similar findings from the Brunner group:
